    Hi All,

    Well…40-0 !!!

    What a great way to “shove it” to all the supporters of other clubs and the “so called” experts, scribes and selectors that have continually degraded, belittled or been disrespectful to our club and its players and supporters!

    Northern Eagles’ “No one likes us” banner featured heavily on the Grand Final footage and as some of you will no doubt be aware I have been selling T shirts inspired by the banner.

    Note: Although theses T shirts are not “official” merchandise all proceeds from the sales go to the Brookvale Oval Development fund  ( http://www.brookieforever.com.au/ ) – This is my own initiative and my way of supporting the cause…..

    Each shirt costs $22 and I can mail order in overnight express bags or they can be collected locally in Manly or Harbord

    On the front of the T shirt is the legend “No one likes us….We don’t care” and on the back is the word “Manly”

    I initially started selling them at the end of July and the response so far has been terrific so thanks to everyone who has bought so far.

    However as we are now in the close season I will be “retiring” the shirts in the next 2 weeks - so if anyone is interested in purchasing one (or many) or would like to see all the details (including photo’s) please check out the "No one likes us shirts" icon at the top right of this page.

    Ideal to wear around town to keep the GF spirit alive or of course they would make a great Christmas present……..

    Cheers and hope to hear from some of you…

    Hi Vidmar,

    Really like the look of the shirt!

    Am keen to know whether those fans, like myself, who live overseas are able to purchase one of these??  If so what is the best way to go about it.

    Cheers

    Hi Jethro,
    I was thinking along similar lines re the 40-0 version but will see what the club come out with in the coming weeks as I don't want to "dilute" their efforts.
    Haven't quite built a stand with my name on it as yet Wheel but have sold around 120 shirts around the country so not a bad effort.
    The shirts cost me $11 (GST incl) and I sell them for $22 (Gst incl) so there is a reasonable mark up that goes directly to the Development fund (I pass on all the profit).
    I've been toying with a few different ideas on shirts and will wait until I've wrapped up this one and wait until I'm less busy with my "paying job" (Mata - Tell your son it's what I do on the days when I'm not drinking alcohol at the footy?)
    Big thanks to everyone that has supported this (Especially Dan).
    Cheers
    Vidmar
    ps Am wearing a very natty maroon est 1947 T shirt today courtesy of the merchandise pack I won at the fan day just before the Final

    Vidmar,

    Going forward, I think you should set it up as a business. I would be happy to help where I can, for a small slice obviously ;)

    Hi Dan,
    As the club needs to be very careful as to what support or involvement they give to 3rd parties on unofficial merchandise sales (NRL of course want their cut) then any future shirts wouldn't be able to be promoted via the "official site" (Which is where the majority of sales have originated from.

    I was "allowed" to post info on there as long as I made it clear that they were not officially sanctioned and then a whole range of other conditions conformed to (eg couldn't sell them at the ground or the Leagues Club, couldn't use the words Sea Eagles, NRL etc etc.)

    That said - as the proceeds were going to the development fund (rather than an earner for me) I was given a green light - may not be the case if I do it to fund me rather than the club but of course I could do stuff through here and ebay etc.

    Will give it some thought and let you know...I'd need to be selling way more than a 100 or so to make it worth while for the time and effort that goes in to it though and not sure if there would be a big enough market to justify it......

    Will let you know

    Hi EP,
    Order received so thanks for that.
    I put the order in to the company that makes them and they should be ready by the end of the week.
    I'll try and get them out by Thursday afternoon but if not will be Monday as I'll be in Muswellbrook on Friday.
    Re NZ (or overseas orders) - I've swapped a couple of emails with Ants and the cost of registered mail overseas is quite prohibitive (Around $Aus) but can send air mail which is more reasonable (Will dependant on number of shirts ie weight of the package)
    I'll be able to post more details once I've got them towards the end of this week.
    Cheers
    Vid
    ps Mata - re your son having my job in 2 years - was that my paying job or the one drinking alcohol at tha footy?
